    Fusing animation and live action with a series of outrageous props, Gondry veers dangerously close to being precious. But make no mistake: Gondry's hallucinatory brilliance holds you in thrall. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    The title is all that's boring about director Michel Gondry's latest mind bender, as trippy as LSD. show more

    The look of the film is dazzling, even hallucinatory, and the concept is beyond quirky as conceived by Gondry, a talented visual stylist, in his first film based on his own script. The story is compelling, unconventional and diverting in its blurring of reality and fantasy. show more

    Bernal continues to demonstrate an impressive range; the character requires the normally laid-back actor to be a wild ball of energy, and he's more than up to the challenge. His performance is hilarious, heartfelt and more than a little creepy, which could also be said about the movie itself. show more

    It only works about half the time, but it's an interesting half. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    This pop-up book of a film is an ideal arrangement between director and star. show more

    Watching it is like being the only non-stoned person in the room as someone tells a long, long story. show more
